Days for Girls

The Leavenworth DfG team, composed mainly of UMW women, has completed sewing and preparing 200 monthly hygiene kits! Last year we only did 112, so our process is now streamlined. We continue to produce attractive, personal, very useful kits and we’re having a great time doing it! These last 200 kits are bound for three schools in Haiti at the end of January. Girls in these schools will receive much needed detailed health education. Hopefully, this will keep them in school all month so they can claim all the days of the month as learning days. By staying in school every day, girls are more easily passing exams and moving on to graduate. Next year, kits made will be destined for distribution in Jordan and in Syrian refugee camps. Anyone wishing to participate in work sessions or in supporting this effort, please connect with Judy Rector.
